Not that the rest of the nation cares, but the Village Voice reports that the self-styled “America’s Mayor” did not, in fact, save New York City:
1. ‘I think the thing that distinguishes me on terrorism is, I have more experience dealing with it.’ This pillar of the Giuliani campaign—asserted by pundits as often as it is by the man himself—is based on the idea that Rudy uniquely understands the terror threat because of his background as a prosecutor and as New York’s mayor. In a July appearance at a Maryland synagogue, Giuliani sketched out his counterterrorism biography, a resume that happens to be rooted in falsehood.
It’s a pretty serious revelation of Giuliani’s fundamental dishonesty about who he is and what he has done. Or as is more accurately the case, not done.
